This story is hard to believe, but that just makes it so much better. The Daily Dayton News published an article recently which lays out how Ohio State University has spent on their 67-year old President, E. Gordon Gee.

Since returning to Columbus as the university’s president in October 2007, the 68-year-old Gee has pulled in $8.6 million in salary and compensation, making him the highest paid CEO of a public university in the country.
But his expenses — hidden among hard-to-get records that the university took nearly a year to release — tally nearly as much: $7.7 million.

This guy has no issue making it rain wherever and whenever:

The Daily News investigation found the university spent more than $895,000 for gatherings at the Pizzuti House, the president’s mansion, between April 2008 and June 2011. That works out to be about $23,000 a month — a little less than the average cost of a wedding.
The university spends tens of thousands of dollars alone branding Gee around his signature bow ties. Since 2007, Ohio State has spent more than $64,000 on bow ties, bow tie cookies and O-H and bow tie pins for Gee and others to distribute, the newspaper found.

That is cool, they dress you but what about your other expenses?!?!?!

Ohio State provides him with a Visa procurement card and a Platinum American Express Card, up to 100 hours a year of flight time on private jets and authorization to fly first class or business class when on commercial flights.
The university picks up the tab for thousands of dollars for flowers Gee sends to politicians and staff members, annual airline club memberships for the president to work in quiet when he travels, and concert, basketball and football tickets that he can use as he sees fit.

We urge you to read the rest of the story HERE.
